Are they any good? would they stand up to a day's work?

I have these in black and they are fab on 12 hour shifts.

Ugly as you like but like walking on air. The most comfy shoes ever.

Yes - not the prettiest but at 40 weeks pregnant they are soooooo comfortable! I have the navy go walk 3 x

Yes, brilliantly comfy. As others have said, not the most stylish, but not too awful for casual. I walk 6 miles (to and from work) in them and they've lasted for ages. I'll shortly be buying a new pair.

They wash really well too.

Yep. Heavenly. Fantastic on long shifts. Definitely worth buying.

thanks everyone, i will invest in a pair especially as my work will pay the first £30 happy me!

I went to try some on again at the weekend, after so much enthusiasm on here. When we got to the shop, we discovered that dd2's friend works there and she said she'd give a (pretty substantial) discount if I liked anything. Even then, I didn't like anything. Everything I tried on was too wide and very ugly. The one pair I had particularly gone looking for didn't seem to exist, but I've tried it on before and it was too wide then anyway!

Are they hot,they look like they might be sweaty?

PacificDogwod Thu 05-May-16 17:44:31

Yes, they are great.
Wash really well.
SportsDirect usually have some on offer for £28 or so.
I was a bit shocked that the latest models retail at £57?! shock

Not sweaty IME, v comfy with or without socks/popsocks.

Greatest shoes ever

ElspethFlashman Thu 05-May-16 17:46:05

No, they're made of a sort of waffle weave upper which lets the air in.

They are pretty wide actually, if you have narrow feet they may be too wide.

PacificDogwod Thu 05-May-16 17:47:10

Their vastness suits my broad feet, but their new wide fitting styles are indeed akin to flippers.

The most comfy shoes I have EVER owned! It's like walking on clouds, i never appreciated how hard the ground was until I took them off.

I read that they washed really well but I put mine in the washing machine once and they got holes in the top and didn't look like they'd been washed at all though sad don't know what I did wrong!

TheoriginalLEM Thu 05-May-16 17:51:53

i did wonder that too, i do get sweaty feet!

TheoriginalLEM Sat 07-May-16 21:23:20

gutted!!! tried a pair on today in sports direct - fugly! and whilst really comfy just didn't feel like they were substantial enough for work and i could see them not supporting my dodgyankles

AverysillyoldHector Sat 07-May-16 21:25:09

I've got a couple of pairs which seemed fine when I bought them, but they are really wide and my feet and ankles slide all over the place in them sad

BestIsWest Sat 07-May-16 21:28:43

I couldn't get on with the Go Walks (too wide) but I have the lace up trainer version. They are bliss. Mine are a couple of years old now and I wore them for the first time in ages today. I'd forgotten how comfortable they are.
